The objective of the grant is to strengthen the
capacity of the Government of Dominican Republic (GoDR) to implement an
adaptive social protection (ASP) system that more effectively supports
households and individuals to adapt, prepare for, cope with, and recover from
the impact of shocks. Specifically, the grant will support the institutionalization of the ASP Strategy, the adaptation of key delivery systems such as targeting and registries, vulnerability assessment tools and payments as well as the adaptation of the conditional cash transfer program to incorporate crisis management elements.
